Remington 700

Has anyone noticed the difference in the anti-binding slots, (located on the lug) is a little different on a SPS Tactical, than a standard Rem. 700s? Also, has anyone else picked one of these SPS Tacticals up?...and if so, what are your impressions? Thanks for any imput.

If you want the options of the SPS, buy it. It will cost much more to buy the standard 700 and upgrade it yourself. The stock and bbl are worth the extra $$ alone. I used to have the 700P and it is a very nice rifle for the money (compared to some very similar rifles that go for 2K+). Remember, don't skimp on the glass... make sure to leave enough $$ to get something good. I hate seeing a really nice rifle with a $100 walmart scope on it.

Reaper308, Thanks...I put a Nikon Monarch 5-20X44 on it, simply because I had to try something new. The glass is impressive, though at above 18-19X parallax is evident...Can read 2" lettering on a mailbox, a quarter mile up the road, no problem. My plans now, are to save some $, and upgrade the stock to a McMillan or Bell and Carlson, bed it, and see what we see...At some time in the future, I plan on hooking-up w/greasypaws, (have an invite for a little Range time). Thanks again for your suggestions!
